For 5 years, Homo Sapiens is an icon of the present age. Its incredible material, a lava and resin compound, has unique features , unbreakable, hygroscopic with a soft touch feeling. The pen was designed under the rules of the Leonardo Divine Proportion and was available in two executions with bronze and steel trims inspired to the Bronze age and Steel age. Following a chronological path, Visconti was inspired from the source of mystery and mysticism that was the Middle Age. Proudly Visconti introduces the Homo Sapiens Dark Age where the metal trims are now treated with a super resistant Rutenium PVD black glossy treatment. The contrast between the trims in glossy black and the compound material in matte dark grey give to the pen an impressive modern elegance. The fountain pen, available in two sizes, is provided with the 23kts /950 palladium nib dreamtouch.
